Instagram Direct now lets you send links and images in landscape and portrait orientations

Instagram yesterday announced a pair of minor updates for Direct, a direct-messaging feature built into its mainland mobile app for iOS and Android. For starters, Instagram Direct now supports sending images and videos in portrait and landscape orientations.

Plus, Instagram is just now offering support for sending links in direct messages.

The ability to send a permanent photo or video in landscape and portrait orientations through Direct means you no longer have to worry about weirdly cropping it as it will now show up properly in its intended orientation.

“We’ve added support for links in Direct,” noted the company. “You can share website links with friends and preview them directly from your thread.” As a bonus, the team also has implemented automatic links to phone numbers and addresses send through Direct.

Landscape and portrait uploads in Direct are available today on iOS, with Android coming soon. Links in Direct messages are available today on both iOS and Android.

Today’s features are part of Instagram’s version 10.22 update.

Grab Instagram for free via App Store.

Apple publishes 4 new “How to shoot on iPhone 7” video tutorials

Apple on Friday added four new video tutorials to the “How to shoot on iPhone 7” series on its YouTube channel. The four new videos were designed to teach customers how to shoot with zoom on their iPhone 7 Plus, convert their photographs to black & white, as well as take a one-handed selfie and edit it on the phone.

“Get closer with 2x optical zoom. Or use digital zoom to get up to 10x closer,” says Apple.

If you tend to use the zoom feature while shooting video on your iPhone 7 Plus, it may be a good idea to disable the automatic lens switching feature in camera settings to avoid any glitches that may occur when zooming in and out during video capture.

How to convert to black & white on iPhone 7

“The right filter and a bit of experimenting with light levels give you a dramatic black-and-white image,” says Apple.

Apple’s latest iPhone 7 Plus ad takes place in a barbershop

A brand new television commercial for iPhone 7 Plus’s dual-lens camera surfaced Monday on Apple’s official YouTube channel. Titled “Barber,” the ad showcases Apple’s Portrait camera mode made possible by the dual-lens system found on the back of the company’s latest Plus smartphone.

Running one minute and ten seconds long, the video takes place in a barbershop and shows the device being used to take depth-of-field shots of customers having their hair done.

Physical prints are then created and displayed on the front of the store to draw in new customers until a lone line emerges outside the shop.

“In Portrait mode on iPhone 7 Plus, you don’t just look good. You look fantastic,” says the video’s description. Portrait shooting mode blurs out the background and focuses on the subject in the foreground to create a DSLR-like depth-of-field effect.

And here is the new television commercial.

Song: “Fantastic Man” by William Onyeabor

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, iPhone 7 Plus has emerged as the most popular Plus model the company has released yet. Last week, Apple posted more than three-dozen videos tips to help customers get the most from their iPhone 7 camera.
